Just posted the shooting draft of Knives Out to my site. All previous scripts that don't involve outer space are up there too.
Part of the many pleasures of Knives Out lies in its screenplay. Nominated for an Academy Award, the work twists and turns, provides and dissects its whodunit genre, and gives all kinds of old-fashioned thrills a refreshingly frank coat of paint. Now, thank the good heavens above, Rian Johnson has posted the entire shooting draft of the script online — alongside already existing scripts of Brick, The Brothers Bloom, and Looper.
Yes, sadly, no outer space movies means no Star Wars: The Last Jedi screenplay to read (can you really imagine Disney being that free?). But it’s an absolute pleasure to dive into one of my favorite 2019 films in this new way. Aspiring writers should especially take note of how one of the best in the biz does it — and gives it up for everyone to look at for free!
Rian Johnson was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for the whodunit. So why not throw it online for everybody?
